  3. 3. 3 As we begin 2017 U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys continues to grow and change in remarkable ways. In this edition of our annual report we’ll bring you up to date on our progress and the challenges we face as we near completion of Camp Humphreys’ transformation into the premier military installation in the Pacific region and the home of U.S. Forces Korea. I am extremely proud of the dedication, hard work and flexibility our community demonstrates every day. We are an Army Community of Excellence supported by a Workforce of Excellence with a primary focus to support mission unit readiness, resilient kids and families while building on a quality of life commensurate with the services and sacrifice of our Soldiers. The last year has seen remarkable changes to Camp Humphreys. We opened a variety of new facilities—a railhead, barracks, a dining facility, two Soldier chapels, a gym, vehicle maintenance facilities and, most recently, a PX Minimall. All of these new facilities provide our Soldiers and families with state of the art support and enhance our already high quality of life. We also welcomed the first rotational unit to Camp Humphreys, the 2nd Battalion 8th Cavalry from the fabled 1st Cavalry Division, Fort Hood, Texas. The Cavalry Troopers were the first to use our newest facilities— railhead, barracks, dining facility, chapel, gym. In the coming year the 8th U.S. Army will move from Yongsan, Seoul to its headquarters at Camp Humphreys, a signal event in our transformation. More new facilities will come on line and we will continue to host rotational units from the Continental United States, providing them the same excellent service and support as every unit here. We’re doing all of this while remaining Ready to Fight Tonight. As we move into the future we do so with the support of our partners in U.S. Forces Korea, 8th Army, 2nd Infantry Division and the Republic of Korea Army. Thanks to all our partners, military and civilian, for their continued support during this challenging time. Our success is due in large part to the great cooperation and collaboration of our partners and allies. Finally, we have the deepest gratitude for our friends in the Korean community. For more than 66 years the Republic of Korea and the United States of America have been allies, partners and friends. We have bled together in war and in peace and have built a modern democracy that is the envy of the world. This relationship, founded on friendship and mutual respect has been the key to our long-standing relationship and will guide us into the future. Kam sahm ni da, katchi kapshida! JOSEPH C. HOLLAND Colonel, Armor COMMANDING From the Commander To our partners, allies and stakeholders
  4. 4. 4 USAG Humphreys, located near the city of Pyeongtaek, South Korea is home to A-511, Desiderio Army Airfield and is poised to become the main effort on the Korean Peninsula and the largest power projection platform in the Pacific. The $10.7 billion transformation and relocation project is the largest ever peacetime Department of Defense relocation and at end state USAG Humphreys will be one of the most- modern and well-equipped Army installations in the world. In the years to come USAG Humphreys’ population will quadruple in size growing from a population of approximately 11,000 to 42,000 Soldiers, families and civilians. The installation which was initially 1,041 acres has already tripled in size. The final fence move which now encompasses all 3,453 acres of SOFA granted land inside the secure perimeter of the garrison was completed in September 2016. 4 United States Army Garrison (USAG) Humphreys provides essential community services, facilities and infrastructure for Soldiers, Families and Civilians while enabling the“Fight Tonight”capability. Mission Focused
  5. 5. 5 While leading and managing a transformation project of this scale, the garrison’s primary focus is (remains) to ensure the combat readiness of the mission units stationed here and their ability to “Fight Tonight.” In addition to becoming the future home of USFK and Eighth Army Headquarters and the 2nd Infantry Division, there are several tactical and direct support units located here, including the 1st Battalion, 16th Infantry Regiment, the 194th Combat Service Support Battalion, 2nd Infantry Sustainment Brigade and the 35th Air Defense Artillery Brigade. The future will bring enhanced training facilities to Humphreys such as a simulations center, Noncommissioned Officer’s Academy, a virtual indoor training facility, weapons ranges and more. Soldiers and family members will have access to new, state of the art facilities and infrastructure. Main construction projects include unit headquarters, vehicle maintenance facilities, hangars, Soldier quarters, family housing, medical facilities, a military communications complex, a downtown shopping area, schools, child development centers, fitness centers and numerous other facilities. There are 146 projects in the works which will result in the construction of 655 new facilities and the demolition of 340 structures. Col. Joseph C.

  6. 6. 6 Yongsan Relocation Plan (YRP) and Land Partnership Plan (LPP) Progress Report Korea Program Relocation Office (KPRO) Efforts to support the relocation and consolidation of U.S. Forces on the Korean Peninsula are executed through two major plans: Yongsan Relocation Plan (YRP) and the Land Partnership Plan (LPP). The Republic of Korea Government (ROKG) funds the YRP agreement to relocate the USFK, United Nations Command, Eighth Army headquarters and all other associated units and agencies to USAG Humphreys. The LPP agreement primarily consolidates forces from north of Seoul to USAG Humphreys while still providing access to northern training areas and ranges. USFK will thus reduce its theater footprint with all non-enduring sites returning to the ROKG. Total YRP/LPP percentage of execution, based on programmed amounts, including land acquisition costs.

  7. 7. 7 In November the Exchange opened a new Troop Mini-Mall in the New Lands. The new facility provides a shoppette, dining and concessionaire support within walking distance of Soldier’s barracks. USAG Humphreys is a premier community providing First Class service and support to Soldiers, Families and Civilians. The Army and Air Force Exchange Service facility includes a 124-seat dining room with a Taco Bell, a Subway and a Starbucks. There’s also a dry cleaner, and an eight-chair barber shop within it’s nearly 24,000 square footprint. - U.S. Army photo by Clint Stone, U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys Public Affairs The Army and Air Force Exchange Service’s new main post Exchange will house a main store, Military Clothing, 44 separate concessions and 12 distinct food service offerings in a 301,000 square foot complex that serves as the corner stone of the new Downtown Area. - U.S. Army photo by Clint Stone, U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys Public Affairs
  8. 8. 8 THE CHALLENGES AHEAD The USFK relocation is well underway but it should come as no surprise to our partners, community members, garrison workforce and host nation communities surrounding the installation that we still face several challenges in the coming years. While the challenges certainly aren’t insurmountable, they will require us to work together to ease the growing pains associated with such a large project while also taking prudent measures to ensure milestones continue to be met at an adequate pace. HOUSING DEFICIT When USFK Transformation and Relocation is complete, USAG Humphreys will face a deficit of 429 on-post family housing units. This number is based on USFK’s requirement that 40 percent of command-sponsored families reside in on-post quarters. The USAG Humphreys Housing Office has received funding to secure additional housing leases in the surrounding area and is offering these new leases to residents assigned to units transitioning to Humphreys.

  10. 10. 10 COMMUNITY DISRUPTION MITIGATION The day-to-day challenges the Humphreys community faces as a result of a variety of transformation-related service and traffic disruptions remain a concern for garrison leaders. Vehicle and pedestrian traffic is routinely disrupted due to road detours and gate closures. As service providers move to end state or temporary swing space locations, community members have to travel greater distances to receive service and support. In some cases, recreation, dining and community support facilities must reduce services or temporarily shut down operations until swing space or end state facilities are made available. Garrison leaders acknowledge the impact transformation has on the community and have taken steps to mitigate, to the greatest extent possible, service, traffic and other community disruptions. Effectively communicating installation construction updates, road closures, service provider moves and other construction-related information is essential in keeping the community informed and aware of changes on the horizon, this transparency fosters a ready and resilient environment for those who live and serve here. This is accomplished through town halls and community update briefings. The Garrison Command group also utilizes forums such as Newcomer’s Orientation, Installation Planning Boards, Real Property Planning Boards, councils and steering committees to maintain open dialogue and transparency with our mission unit commanders, garrison workforce and community members. The garrison Public Affairs office also distributes transformation and construction updates via a robust social media program. Garrison leadership addresses the community during the Community Town Hall on Sept. 21 in the Humphreys Community Fitness Center’s conference room. - U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt. Alex Young, U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys Visual Information
  11. 11. 11 AIRCRAFT PARKING SPACE SHORTFALL USAG Humphreys has one rotational Attack Reconnaissance squadron stationed here on a nine- month deployment rotational cycle set to depart in January 2017. Arrival of the AH-64 Apache HARS platform is scheduled for February 2017. While the garrison can support housing, vehicle maintenance, headquarters space, hangars and parking requirements for the rotational OH-58 ARS platform, they are unable to support the HARS in the same manner. In the near future, there will only be enough available aircraft parking and hangar space at Desiderio Army Airfield (A-511) for one company of the HARS. The remainder would need to split base to an alternate location until the completion of additional parking currently scheduled for October 2017. The completion of additional parking will eventually open aircraft parking spaces to support the entire HARS, however that will impact future scheduled airfield development.

  12. 12. 12 SWING SPACE & END STATE MOVES One of the many logistical challenges faced when undertaking a construction, relocation and consolidation project like the one underway at USAG Humphreys is managing swing space requirements from project beginning to end. Swing space is space used on an interim basis or occupied during a construction or renovation project. In some cases the garrison relies on swing space facilities to move relocation units and organizations into temporary locations while construction or renovations are completed on permanent facilities. Interim swing space moves may also be required to accommodate the lag between the destruction of an existing facility and the construction of permanent space. Swing space facilities may be required because some parts of the organization move in phases in order to maintain continuity of operations during relocation. To mitigate swing space challenges the garrison’s Directorate of Public Works took steps early in planning to minimize the need for swing space moves and reduce their impact on those stationed here. Despite those efforts numerous moves were and will be required. Swing space moves are not just about space, they also involve the disruptions in services as personnel, vehicles, equipment and supplies move from current to interim locations and then to permanent facilities. In some cases organizations must make more than one swing space move due to the pace and time of construction across the garrison. Lack of parking at swing space facilities is also a challenge as the available parking space at interim facilities was not designed to meet the needs of transient residents or their customers.

The center, at approximately 89,000 square feet, features equipment checkout, locker rooms, basketball court, weight room, stationary cycling room, cardio room, multipurpose fitness rooms, racquetball courts, indoor rock climbing wall and combative/boxing room. - U.S. Army photo by Bob McElroy, U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys Public Affairs The future Humphreys Middle School will have 44 classrooms and the capacity to accommodate 1,100 students and staff. Also included are an auditorium, outdoor track, basketball courts, tennis courts and a football field. - U.S. Army photo by Clint Stone, U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys Public Affairs The future Humphreys West Elementary School will bring the total capacity for Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DoDDS) elementary education to 1,750 students on Camp Humphreys. - U.S. Army photo by Clint Stone, U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys Public Affairs
  13. 13. 13 CULTURAL TRANSFORMATION As Humphreys transforms and roads, housing areas, schools, work sites and support structures take shape it’s important for those here now and in the future to remain flexible and prepared to adapt to a new way of thinking when it comes to serving in South Korea. With that in mind, garrison officials reassess processes, procedures and mission support requirements to ensure appropriate measures are taken to meet the needs of a rapidly changing community. To achieve success it’s also imperative to understand the impact transformation has and will continue to have on geographic, psychographic and demographic factors related to restationing. Leaders and managers at all levels must focus on the critical success factors required for training, transportation, security, plans and operations to ensure USAG Humphreys is a premier community providing First Class service and support to Soldiers, Families and Civilians. Garrison officials work closely with host nation business, civic and government leaders through initiatives like the ROK- U.S. Friendship Council, Korea Housing Forum and other community relations activities. The garrison is taking steps to ensure our host-nation partners understand the impact USAG Humphreys’ changing demographics will have on off- post housing, shopping, dining, and cultural and entertainment needs.
